Just been to my one month checkup and am amazed to find I have 20/12 vision! The whole experience has been great. The procedure itself is quite a scary 8 minutes so knowing how efficient and well done the pre-op work up had been was very reassuring.
Having the LASEK rather than the LASIK was quite a tough decision but I went for it because I had a recurrent corneal erosion. The first few days were a little bit sore, but the staff at focus were very reassuring and we're completely right that within a week I was feeling loads better. Loving not waking up to painful and dry eyes as well as great vision!
Would highly recommend focus, and would also say if for any reason LASEK seems to be more the procedure for you, then don't be put off by the post-op recovery, its certainly not unmanageable and passes very quickly.

Everything about the experience was fantastic. Pre- and after care was exhaustive with plenty of time for questions and support. Procedure itself couldn't have gone smoother and was over amazingly quickly. Immediately noticed improvement in vision despite the obvious blurriness and any discomfort went very quickly. Wholeheartedly recommend!

All the staff at Focus Clinics have been friendly and welcoming from day one.
The procedure itself was a little uncomfortable but over very quickly. Vision was good almost instantly. The following four hours or so were uncomfortable and getting used to the numerous drops routine was a bit challenging. The next morning at my first checkup my vision was already better than 20/20. Apart from dryness of the eyes I haven't really had any major problems.
I am a season ticket holder at Norwich F.C. And my real WOW moment came when I went to my first match two weeks after surgery. It was like watching in HD and I could read all the detail on the advertising at the far end of the pitch. I would recommend Focus Clinics to anyone thinking of having laser surgery.

I waited a couple of years before finally deciding to take the plunge and have corrective laser surgery. After doing some research into the numerous companies and clinics that offer laser surgery, I decided that I wanted to go with Focus. I was happy that they were a well-established and trusted company, and was confident that I would receive a good service from them.
I cannot fault Focus on anything from my appointments leading up to the surgery, the surgery itself, and almost most importantly the high level of aftercare that they provide.
Corrective laser eye surgery has changed my life completely. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about having it done, and with that I always recommend the team at Focus too in the knowledge that anyone who comes here will get the same high standard of care that I received.

My first visit to Focus was memorable. I was expecting something between an optician and a hospital, but was extremely surprised my it's warm, friendly, and inviting atmosphere. I was greeted by receptionist Lisa and made to feel at home. What followed was a check up from Emma and a consultation from Harpreet who informed me with every single piece of information I could ever need to know about my time with Focus and reassuring answers to any questions/concerns I was encouraged to put forward. I was informed in what to do to prepare for the operation, what to expect from the operation itself, and the aftercare that would be required in the following months. I left feeling confident I was making the right decision and assured that I was doing it with the right people.
The standard of customer service throughout my entire time with Focus was excellent. From the initial consultation, to the operation itself and through to the aftercare, including all communications in between. At all times each member of the clinic was friendly, caring, professional, understanding and willing to talk and help at any time.
The day of treatment is obviously a nervy one, but I felt that the way the staff treated me and the way the operation was carried out gave little time for those nerves to settle in. Having been fully prepared by the excellent staff before the operation and during my consultation, I met Dr. David Allamby on Wednesday 9th October, the day of my operation. David carried the same professionalism and warm personality the rest of the Focus team had which was really reassuring in a time of anticipation . The operation itself was a little uncomfortable but not painful in the slightest. Dr. Allamby always made me feel as if I was in control and this certainly made me feel more comfortable. It was over in minutes and after a little rest in the dark room, I was out of the clinic in no time. I was totally shocked to discover that my sight was already working (albeit, very sensitive to light!) despite the optometrist assuring me that it would.
The morning after the operation was a very odd sensation. The sensitivity of my eyes had improved over the evening of the operation and by the morning had shown a remarkable advancement. Awakening without my glasses on and being able to see was an experience I will not forget for a very long time, for a split second I was convinced I had fallen asleep with my contact lenses in! It was a true testament to all the celebrated stories and assurances I had been given about Focus.
Laser eye surgery has certainly changed my life in many different ways. The clarity of my vision feels improved compared to the subscription of both my glasses and contact lenses. Not having the fear of dry eyes from over wearing lenses or the panic of forgetting spectacles is also a massive benefit. I also no longer have to worry about my repeat health scare with my eyes, suffering from eye ulcers on three occasions. Also, financially, not having to worry about my monthly contact lens payment or my next pair of glasses is a great relief!
For anyone who is in a similar position as to where I was last year, I cannot recommend Focus highly enough. My main concern was always the cost, but having had the operation and being able to see first hand how it has benefited my life. I can honestly say that it has been one of the best decisions I have made. The team at Focus are truly great. They have a understanding of how important the operation is for each individual and are an extremely happy, knowledgeable, professional, and friendly team of people.
Anon / Z LASIK, December 11th 2013
"Having spent many years debating whether to have this treatment, I decided to make one last attempt to find a suitable surgeon at the right price. Some eight or nine years ago, a high street provider had told me that my prescription was outside of the range they could help with. This was correct at the time, but technology has moved along considerably! I decided to take things slowly and spoke at length with the Focus clinic before coming in for a consultation. Having researched the surgeons thoroughly, and visited the clinic I felt I could trust Focus: The clinic is run by an enthusiastic, personable and knowledgable staff which is most reassuring. Also, I was aware that the equipment and techniques used here are far ahead of what I could find on the high street. At no time did I feel pressured or uninformed.
The day of my surgery was very exciting, and a bit worrying too, so my partner came along for support. I nonetheless felt confident because everything had been explained and I knew what to expect. The procedure itself was a strange experience, but in itself not distressing or particularly painful; my surgeon, Mr Allamby, talked me through everything that was happening, there was an extremely attentive team around me, and after 10 minutes, both eyes were finished and I could genuinely see clear as day!
The worst bit was a few hours after I had got home. I was not in any real pain, but I was uncomfortable and a little bit overwhelmed. Nonetheless, I had full instructions and my surgeon's mobile number and this put my mind at rest (I didn't need to call him!). Sleeping with eye protectors was also a strange experience, but within a couple of days I was quite used to the eye protector and the eye drops. It was literally as though I had never needed glasses.
I have not hesitated to recommend Focus: one of the most outstanding aspects of their service is the after care. You are seen the day after surgery, and the following week and the following month and thorough the year following your procedure. Personally, this was a but part of my choice. I wanted to deal with a responsible staff who would be genuinely accountable, and Focus achieves this 100%.
It has been six months now and I can honestly say that this is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not that I didn't like my glasses, I did! But now I just have that much more freedom to go about my daily business without constantly worrying about them."

"I felt well cared for at every stage of the treatment and I am so happy with the results. It is an amazing experience waking up and being able to see. My life has been changed for the better."
Andrew Cook / Blended Vision, November 26th 2013
"I have been considering having laser treatment for many years now. After another contact lens related eye infection on holiday this summer I finally decided to take the plunge.
I came to Focus clinic through a recommendation from a friend who was very happy with the results of his treatment. Right from the start I found the service to be very friendly, professional and trustworthy.
The operation itself was very quick and painless. I opted for the blended vision. There was a great payment plan to help ease the financial side of things.
The aftercare has been superb. I am very pleased with the results and the whole process.
I would not hesitate to encourage fellow contact lens/spectacle wearers to stop thinking about having laser eye surgery and just go for it!"
